You can always spot a Hawaiian by the way they surf in good waves. In the generation of air reverses, it has ironically become an anomaly for a kid excel in quality surf. Somehow, perfection is now considered a specialty condition. But Tanner Hendrickson is from Maui so he needn’t worry about that. He knows exactly what to do with a good wave. The summer of ’13 marked Tanner’s first meeting with the Mentawais, but you’d think they’ve known each other for years. At :46, Tanner weaves his way through a tube like Harry Houdini stunting — it’s either impressive work or a spectacular illusion. In fact, Tanner looks sharp on all the perfect waves in this edit. He’s a product of his environment after all.
